5 The ﬁgure is constructed on the assumption that P/L is normally distributed with mean 0 and standard deviation 1 over a holding period of 1 day. 5 Value at risk. Note: Produced using the ‘normalvarﬁgure’ function. positive values will typically be more common than negative ones. To get the VaR, we must choose a conﬁdence level (cl). If this is 95%, say, then the VaR is given by the negative of the point on the x-axis that cuts off the top 95% of P/L observations from the bottom 5% of tail observations.
In this particular case, which is also typical of many, the surface rises with both conﬁdence level and holding period to culminate in a spike — indicating where our portfolio is most vulnerable — as both parameters approach their maximum values. 9 A VaR surface. Note: Produced using the ‘normalvarplot3D’ function. 7 Under the 1996 Amendment to the Basle Accord, institutions judged to have sound risk management practices are allowed the option of having their capital requirements determined by their own VaR estimates.
For example, what is the maximum likely proﬁt (or loss) at a particular level of probability? 2. 645. 645. 645. 645. 645. 645. 645 can then be described as the value at risk (or VaR) of our portfolio at the 95% level of conﬁdence, and we will have more to say about this presently. The assumption that P/L is normally distributed is attractive for three reasons. The ﬁrst is that it often has some, albeit limited, plausibility in circumstances where we can appeal to the central limit theorem. 2 Normal quantiles and probabilities.
